if this is the reason mtr has a massive memory leak then i would
perhaps argue that it *is* important enough.
i left mtr running overnight and it leaked so much it eventually
used over 30GB of VA and triggered my X server being killed, so
it was a pretty severe end result -- it could be sshd or postfix
or something else killed on a server, with less obviousness.
i'll try to see if this is the problem with mtr itself.
